COMPOSER(S): Loreta Fin
Time Twist is a jubilant violin solo and uses the same rhythm used in the song “America,” from Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story. It alternates meter from 6/8 to 3/4. The composer, Loreta Fin, has always loved this rhythmic interplay and has used it in several of her works for string orchestra. It is vital to feel the pulse and understand whether the notes are grouped in simple or compound time. Be sure to keep the bow even on both strings in the double stops. Take care to subdivide the dotted rhythms in the short major section and play the quarter notes precisely.
